ANSWER - Tuesday Trivia: Atlantic City

Why was the first boardwalk in Atlantic City built?

To keep vacationing beachgoers from tracking sand into local hotels. The wooden boardwalk, built in 1870, was a mile long and eight feet wide. It linked the beach with the town and could be dismantled and stored in sections during the stormy winter months. The first permanent boardwalk was built in 1884.

Congratulations to Mochaface friend Bsimi who got the answer right by proxy.

Stuff I've learned in the last 2 minutes:

1. The Boardwalk was built by people who hate sand.

2. You aren't black.

How have I read you this long and this is the first time I've noticed your picture? I would have sworn you were at least hispanic. I think it was the "mochaface" that gave me that impression. Seriously, my world is all spinny.

I still like you though even though you're not black.

ROFLMAO! Jenny glad I could help with your daily education. Everyone likes sand until it gets into their vaginas then they're not such fans any longer.

That's a new one. I'm not even close to being black as I'm such a pasty white girl.
